Ok, we what we call pharmacy tech basic math is actually just elementary level mathematics.

Unfortunately, many of us have lost these skills after high school and it is part of what scares a lot of techs from taking a certification test. If you don’t know your basics, then you won’t be successful working the math problems on the PTCE. If it has been a while since you have worked with decimals and fractions, then definitely practice because the PTCE math problems will contain them. The actual test questions will not ask you these so-called pharmacy tech basic math questions, but you need to be efficient in knowing how to do it so you can get through the math word problems with ease. Remember the PTCE is timed so you don’t want to spend too long on any particular question.
